Last week, our directors from abroad were in Singapore for a business trip and wanted to try the Singapore delicacy called rojak, so we brought them to the East Coast Lagoon Food Village, a hawker place.
I’ve been here one or two times before.
While the locals (and therefore subject matter experts) bought the food, the foreigners went to the beach to catch the wonderful sea breeze and take some photos.
They wanted to eat at the barbecue pit but our local colleagues advised against it so we moved inwards.
It turns out the chinese rojak place was closed, but they were able to get Indonesian rojak, and a few other items.
They also got a few things I was not able to photograph, like spicy kangkong and sambal stingray, the latter of which became everyone’s favourite.
One of our directors kept saying that it wasn’t that spicy, but his runny nose begged to differ.
They said it was their first time to try all the delicacies and they loved the experience, including eating them on the beach.
It was a really great lunch break!
